Product Description

CALEB, Part 1

What do you do when the right love finds you at the wrong time?

At age 17, Caleb Dean’s world is ripped apart in a matter of minutes, tragedy striking sudden and violent. Now, four years later, Caleb is still trying to undo what he deems to be his fault.

Taking work wherever he can get it, Caleb finds his way to New York and The Phoenix Club. Stunning the crowd with his debut performance, Caleb quickly catches the eye of Brock Coulson, an aggressive defense attorney with a secret lust for young male strippers.

With his brother incarcerated from an unjust sentence and the victim of brutality behind those walls, Caleb will do go to any lengths to get his brother out of prison. But his plans to negotiate with Coulson get interrupted when Caleb meets Samuel.

He knows not to get too close, but Samuel is a whirlwind of passion, sweeping him off his feet and refusing to let him go.

Warning: This book contains homosexual relations and language not suitable for readers below 17yo.

NOTE: For those coming across the 'Phoenix Club' series sporadically, they were written in this order, and if possible, should be read accordingly, due to story lines that run through all the books :

I initially thought that the author might be offering a 'sweeter' version of Abel's tale, but it's clear that this is not the case. However, the tales aren't dissimilar, as they feature the same club, both Abel and Caleb (yup, even the names are a play on each other, LOL!) are dancers, we get to see the same side characters (including Horatio who seems to have very conveniently forgotten his obsession with Abel and is now back after his ex, Max), and similar scenes of personal trauma and brutal sex (which takes place with someone other than the other lead).

Yes, the sex between the leads is hot, but please Ms Bishop, these tales are set in 2014 and having unsafe sex, especially with Caleb's work situation on top, is not realistic. That not one of the males even thinks about safe sex, even in passing, and that not one of them uses lube, is asking readers to suspend disbelief too much. And, passion aside, sex in a public pool is not sexy, and Caleb allowing a client to 'release' all over his pretty dangerous and reckless, and shows a lack of consideration for Caleb's lover, and a lack of self-esteem in Caleb himself (who is working at the club for a pretty selfless reason, so he's not lacking in courage or loyalty, just, seemingly, common sense at times).

I have gone on to buy the rest in the series, and they are worth a read, but they're not dissimilar in principle and execution to Abel's tale. I'm sort of getting the 'read that, seen that, been there' vibe...which will probably continue with Dane's tale, as at the very end of the trilogy, we get introduced to yet another Abel/Caleb type of character.

The book is written out very well by C J Bishop. The conflict between Caleb and his boyfriend is tangible making one feel sorry for both the characters. Book gives a good insight into how their minds work and the end was a bit shocking. The future books will hopefully sort out the bit of a mess that is created in the climax of this first book.

'When Worlds Collide' is the first book in Caleb's trilogy. If you aren't familiar with the 'Phoenix Club' series by C.J. Bishop, not only do you need to be, but each of the young men has a trilogy of their own, although they are still featured within other books. I fell in love with Abel's trilogy and fully anticipate the same thing with Caleb. I want to see more of Gabe and Cole, Max, Horatio, Abel and Devlin, plus whatever other characters the author sees fit to introduce me to. Each of these young men has suffered heartache and pain, but Max has made the Phoenix club their family, and there isn't anything these young men won't do for each other.

For a guy who has never stripped before, Caleb's debut performance almost brings the roof down. Good thing too, since Abel is no longer working there, the club needs a new, fresh face, and it looks like they all got lucky when Caleb came through the doors. Samuel and Caleb meet at a public pool one evening, and it's love at first sight, at least for Samuel, although Caleb isn't much further behind. Caleb doesn't want to tell him he's a stripper, and Samuel is hesitant to tell Caleb that his family is wealthy, even though Samuel hasn't got much use for any of them. They begin seeing one another, and take it from me, the sex is off the charts, but Samuel wants more from Caleb. Unfortunately, a client at the club has got his eye on Caleb.

Brock is a high-powered criminal defense attorney and he wants Caleb. Caleb needs an attorney to help him get his brother, Nick's, conviction overturned. It's why Caleb works so hard to get as much money as possible, to support himself, send money to Nick in prison, and try to save some to hire an attorney. Caleb blames himself for Nick being in prison, for the accident that caused a little girl's death, and he visits Nick every month. Plenty of things have happened to Nick since he started serving his sentence that he'll never tell Caleb. Nick knows the guilt would crush his little brother. Interestingly, neither brother has ever told the other they're gay.

Dane is one of the young men at the club and he takes an interest in Caleb. Once Dane meets Samuel and sees Caleb's eyes light up for him, Dane knows he has no chance. But he can be his friend, someone who Caleb can talk to about all his problems. Caleb's latest visit to see Nick reveals his brother's bruised and battered face, which Nick shrugs off, but Caleb can't forget, forcing Caleb to make a deal with Brock. When Samuel and Caleb go out on their first official date, well, a surprising revelation comes to the fore and life isn't looking too happy for Caleb.

I adored Caleb and Samuel. I like the story line. I'm worried already about Max and Horatio's trilogy, because those two are killing me. I know Dane is going to get his heart broken over Caleb, but all I can do is hold his hand and hope for the best. I'm really looking forward to the rest of Caleb's story and I'm enjoying this series, very much.

This was a very good book. I finished the book in no time at all. The story was a very good one. I have now purchased the second book in the series. C J Bishop is a good story teller.
